I operate : How do I fix it?

Remove BuddyNS servers from the NS records of 's DNS.

  • At your registry, which is typically the website you bought from.

You basically need to perform the reverse process of what you did when you delegated to BuddyNS servers — but removing the NS records instead of adding them, in the same places as you did. Refer to the BuddyNS delegation guide to refresh your memory.

The tiny part we can do is hosting this page: we take hundreds of millions of unanserable requests a month by domains with stray DNS delegation such as this one, and still serve them with this page to remind of the issue.
